Immigration in America

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

I was born here
My father was Born here
My grandfather was born here.
His father was born here.


That makes it all good when I decide to pack up my bags, head to down to Washington, force my family, dogs and two cats to live in a tent, just so that I can have the right, pleasure, and demented vision of protesting our new president for giving the decision back to the states to decide where or when a surgically altered human being has option to pee. This I MUST do considering how urgent a situation it is. We "ALL" have the right to pee where we feel necessary...

So, I don't have to work for a living. I can just move into my mom's basement, play my video games, and on occasion have a nice bag of marajuanna delivered to my house from my drug dealer buddy, using the money I get from the false disability insurance claim I'm on, and have been on for the last decade.

Yup.. it's my right.....

As for immigration, I'm in AZ, lots of south here. I had a friend killed by an illegal immigrant that decided to get just high enough on Meth that she could still operate the key to her Honda,but not see a red light.

That really hurt my family, our daughter at that time was 7 and loved her "uncle" Chris. How do you explain to a 7 year old that one of her favorite people is now in heaven and she can't see him ever again because of a selfish act of someone that shouldn't have been on that that street?

I have personal pain that goes with the illegal immigrants. Does it cloud my judgment!? I'd like to say no, but it does to some degree.

Why did I share what Chris's/my families went threw? It effected hundreds. Think about that, Chris young man 20 years old. Everyone that knew him effected. I worked with him, great "kid". Think of that trickle down effect.

I'm okay with someone getting their paperwork, doing the right thing to come enjoy the greatest county on this little blue dot. BUT them tards that jump the fence have no respect for this great nation.. I say bye bye.

Come to my country, do the paperwork, learn English, get a job, contribute to society, and yer welcome.

Swim the Rio, use the resources, game the system, bring your crime with you. Not welcome.

Come with your world conquest "religion" and refuse to assimilate, but freely accept all the freebies you can get.......also not welcome.

The bigger picture here is that the immigration and welfare mess is actually a playing out of the Cloward-Piven strategy of overwhelming the system to break it down so it can be replaced with a purer socialism.

Domestic immigration is no different than foreign if you think about it. When I was a little kid, California was nothing like it is now. The people still had a backbone. But I watched it deteriorate as the big city eastern socialist mentality came flooding in taking control. Same thing happened in Montana when brainwashed Californians moved in there. we have the same problem here in Alaska now. Everyone with their hand out to the government.

The good subjects of Illinois won't even put up a semblance of a whimper.

Had 25 years to do something about Chicago flat billers, but zero, zilch, zip.

All I hear is a whole bunch of NRA, 2nd Amendment & forum chest thumping, but no real action.

That battle, when it comes, will be fought in the South.

What's clear is that we are witnessing the decline of Western society as we knew it. The enemy is determined, focused & united. We are not.

They see a weak, self indulgent society which pays more heed to third bathrooms & same sex marriage rather than recognize a threat.

To add insult to injury, 50% of the population welcomes their own killers.

We bleat about "doing the right thing & helping our fellow man"...they laugh at how easily opportunity is handed to them.

North America has morphed from fit to fat in 50 years.

Soon the U.S., and Canada with it, will be fondly remembered like the Roman civilization. Except North America will be a mere flash in the pan.

It will be the two remaining 5000 year old civilizations who will set aside PC niceties and rise to the occasion.

Suicide is never pleasant to watch.

In a nut shell we welcome you from all corners of the globe...we simply require you do so in a LEGAL manner so we can welcome you into the fold. If you have designs to destroy our way of life then we promise to hunt you to the ends of the earth and feed you to the pigs.

The issue is the fifth columnists who come here legally.

I take it you were from Chicago............. That we have managed to shut them down is far more than just thumping our chests.

Outside of that Self-flagellating Urban paradise of Cook County, trying it will get you shot.

No, only been to Chicago twice, hated it both times.

Rural IL in the other hand - met some great folks there.

I meant "IL had 25 yrs etc etc".

I tried to stay out of this...

I just want to make one, what I consider to be a very important point, THERE IS NO FUNCTIONAL LEGAL WAY FOR AN AVERAGE MEXICAN TO IMMIGRATE TO THE USA. It costs them 1500 non-refundable dollars to apply for a green card. I have a hard working, good guy friend down here that has applied and been denied twice. No reason given. It is disingenuous to say "they should come legally", when it doesn't really exist. On the other hand, if you have a 100 MPH fastball, you're in, just ask Fernando Valenzuela. Also, the vast majority don't want to become citizens, they just want work permits and the ability to be able to visit their family that is still in Mexico. It just feels cold to me. I know that people feel strongly about this, but they really should become informed about the details. IMHO, The vast majority of the people down here are great people that love their family and believe in God and are pretty conservative. Sure sounds like members of a certain political party to me. In the mean time, I am going to sit down here for a month or so, soak in the rays, enjoy my good friends and watch the disintegration of democracy in the USA and hope something is left when I get back. I also thought that there should be at 1 post with some accurate information about this complicated problem ...Mark Edit: I thought something may have changed since my friend applied, now the only way is to win the lottery, that is if they don't qualify for those other ways...
